Oldham Athletic and Swindon Town clash tonight in the Sky Bet League One game at Sportsdirect.com Park. Oldham come into the game just outside the play off places and on the back of a good away win at weekend against Scunthorpe United at Glanford park, and will be looking to return to the play off places with a win tonight. The visitors similarly come into tonight’s game in good form with just one defeat in their last seven games and sat comfortably second in League One. The last meeting between these two sides ended in an exciting 2-2 draw at The County Ground.
William Hill have The home side at 11/5 to win, with the visitors 5/4 to continue their good form, and for a repeat of the draw back in September the odds stand at 23/10. Despite the tough call and many peoples reluctance to bet on a draw, this may be the best option. At 3/1 a score draw also looks appealing due to the high scoring meetings between these two teams previously, as well as the good form of both teams.
3/1 Score Draw – 3pt
A Tuesday Teaser
One bet that may be worth a little splash would be George Elokobi to score anytime at 7/1 – 1pt
The centreback has scored 3 goals in his last 4 home games and is a real threat from set pieces. This could be the value in what I expect to be a close, high-scoring game.
Best of luck!
